What else you should know:
Sex link chickens are very adaptable to non-cage operations and forage well.  The hens start laying around five months of age, and can lay up to 320 eggs in their first year.  After their first year of laying, hens slow down in production and are usually replaced by younger hens.  

Hybrid breeds are more likely to succumb to illness.  It is often recommend to keep hybrid chicks on medicated starter, and vaccinate them for Mareks and Infectious Bronchitis.
